The Icehouse welcomes new leaders with diverse expertise to its governance
The Icehouse announced the appointment of new directors to its board, in addition to welcoming new trustees to its owner, the International Centre for Entrepreneurship Trust which is a charitable foundation. Greg Tomlinson, Jonathan Reid and Kerry McIntosh are the three new directors to join The Icehouse board, with Simon Bennett, Craig Carr and Franceska Banga joining as trustees of the Foundation.
Their appointments come at a time when The Icehouse is undertaking a review and refresh of its goal to 2020 of enabling a 10% lift in the country’s GDP while the Foundation starts to broaden its charitable reach within New Zealand.
With backgrounds ranging from construction to agribusiness, investment banking to mussel farming, and technology to recruitment; Chairman of The Icehouse Board, Chris Quin, says these entrepreneurs and experts bring a diversity of approach and thinking to The Icehouse which will be critical for its ongoing performance and contribution to New Zealand.
